A Precious Heirloom

Because each Nichols portrait will be for you a precious heirloom, cherished for generations to come, Dr. Nichols approaches each portrait as a unique creative adventure. Part of his service to you is a formal unveiling ceremony.

When he is not painting a commissioned portrait or attending an unveiling ceremony, Nichols paints portraits of ordinary people from cultures where he has traveled. Because he lives near San Antonio, Texas, he also enjoys painting other Southwest subjects such as still life and nature.

To discuss your interest in a portrait, please call Dr. Nichols. He will be happy to talk to you without any obligations about your portrait needs.
